We Choose goes back to school!

We held the first of our fall screenings of Digital Disconnect last night at Ryerson University! Thank you to everyone who came out, watch the film and got the conversation going with some tough questions. Our deepest appreciation go to the Ryerson Leadership Lab and Documentary Organization of Canada for partnering with us on this event.

Co-Founder of the Ryerson Leadership Lab welcomes guests with a few opening remarks about the event and the film.

 

FRIENDS Executive Director Daniel Bernhard introduces the film and panellists.
